LAYLA – 12880
Safe - 11-28-2017 Manhattan Rescue: Amsterdog Animal Rescue Please honor your pledges: http://amsterdog.org/donate/
Hello, my name is Layla. My animal id is #12880. I am a female black dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 2 years 3 months old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 17-Nov-2017, with the surrender reason stated as person circumstance- cannot afford to care for.
Layla is at risk for medical reasons. Layla has contracted Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex, which is contagious to other dogs. Behaviorally, Layla has been assessed as being suited a dog experienced home.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: “My little platypus,” cooed a staff member as Layla and I headed out for a walk. So quiet in her kennel all day waiting her turn, she’s a tiny little thing with a wagging tail and a big smile. Surrendered to our care with wonderful comments from her former family, Layla lived with an adult and a child with whom she was friendly and relaxed, and also lived with a 10 year old small breed dog with whom she was playful and respectful. The dogs enjoyed chasing each other around the house. Layla doesn’t guard her things, likes stuffed toys and playing tug. Although we’re told that Layla isn’t completely housebroken, she did potty outside with me, so will need regular walks and positive reinforcement (good girl treats) to reinforce her skills. She was so happy to be out, letting me put a coat on her against the cold, wagging her tail, and jumping up to give me kisses. Layla focuses on birds, wagging her tail and pulling towards them to watch them fly. Maybe she was a bird dog in her previous life? Off leash, she chases a ball but can’t retrieve, loves playing tug, shows off her sit for treats which she takes softly. When a small dog entered the yard, Layla was so excited to see him, tail wagging and engaging, perhaps reminding her of the small dog she lived with. Layla has what I call parrot mouth, when the end of her bottom jaw doesn’t meet the end of the top giving her muzzle a pointed look like a parrot, or like a platypus per staff. It give her a unique and adorable look, doesn’t stop her from enjoying treats and food, playing tug or giving kisses. There’s no ‘special needs’ here other than the need to love and be loved, and yes, that’s pretty special.
